Clinical trials for liver cancer

Clinical trials are a vital step in discovering new treatments for cancer. UCLA doctors conduct clinical research to find new therapies for liver tumors, and geneticists also work with precision medicine, which uses your DNA to help pinpoint the best treatment for you.
